Student engagement is out-of-classroom scholarship, research, and projects undertaken by Penn State students in service of the community. Outreach is proud to play a significant role in connecting students with unique learning opportunities and advancing Penn State’s land-grant mission.

  • connecting with the natural world through hands-on experience, teaching, and leadership to promote environmental stewardship
  • partnering with artificial intelligence industry leaders to prototype and design solutions utilizing cutting-edge AI
  • creating content for a multichannel public media company
  • studying, researching, and working on capstone projects in an urban setting
